The Magical Ingredient

Hops farms are struggling to keep up with the growth of craft brewing

By Hudson Lindenberger
Last year, thirsty Americans enjoyed almost 9.5 million barrels of beer. That’s a lot of beer! Every time one of them cracked a can or popped the top on their favorite brewski, they unknowingly paid homage to the side effects of Humulus lupulus.

Fate Brewing Company floats a summer special

By Benjamin Roberts
Many breweries are ushering in the season with lighter summer fare, like Boulder Beer’s Hoopla, their dry-hopped festival beer. Others are planning to celebrate the season with one-off events like Avery’s Four on the Fourth 4K race, in which runners can compete before enjoying beer and breakfast burritos.

Pucker up

Are sour heads the next hop heads?

By Cody Gabbard
Recently, New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins added Snapshot to their year-round lineup, which is billed as a citrusy and tart wheat beer. Although not listed on the bottle, Snapshot utilizes a mixed-fermentation which includes lactobacillus (a yeast strain which can impart “tart,” “sour,” and “barnyard” characteristics). As far as sours go, Snapshot is quite tame compared to some of its mouth-puckering counterparts.

Boulder Beer turns 35

By Josh Gross
Between wacky recipes, oddball marketing and all manner of shenaniganry, it isn’t just the alcohol that makes the corporate identity of most breweries seem fairly adolescent. But can you blame ‘em? It’s not quite The Children of the Corn, but only a handful of breweries are out of their teens. The elder statesman of Colorado breweries, Boulder Beer, is only 35. And barely 35 at that. Its birthday is this weekend.

Colorado’s beer scene is getting crowded

By Hudson Lindenberger
When Upslope brewing opened its doors in 2008, it was the first new brewery in Boulder in over a decade. Its approach was simple: wellcrafted approachable beer served in cans; the labels simply stated the style: pale ale, IPA, craft lager, etc.

Barley, hops and gluten

Gluten is a protein in some grains, like wheat and barley, commonly used in pasta, bread and, yes, beer. Gluten-free diets started because of Celiac disease, a serious condition in which people can’t tolerate gluten. Currently, 1 in 133 people have Celiac and 7 percent of people report having non-Celiac sensitivity.

Fort Collins Beer Week is nigh

By Josh Gross
Longmont’s Left Hand Brewing has started a run’n’chug series of its own, the “Beer Run” Running Club, which will be going down every Saturday from noon-1 p.m. “Each runner is encouraged to go at their own pace (if you want to walk instead of run, that is absolutely fine!),” Morgan Zamora, administrator for Left Hand Brewing wrote in a press release.

The ol’ run’n’chug

A new milestone in Bro-dom has been reached: California runner James Nielson set a new record in the “Beer Mile,” in which a runner runs a mile, whilst chugging. Four laps and four beers.

Upslope kicks into high gear

By Mallane Dressel
Upslope is trying to get their beer to the people with a just-announced list of upcoming spring and summer events. Boulder teetotalers will be tempted with a music festival, beer and food truck pairings, the chance to make earrings out of cans and tutorials on bike mechanics.
